I can't stop playing around with GPT-2. Just look at this! Prompt in Bold.

Delphi it drew us
Over the touchscreen
Delphi it threw us
Up like a stone
In sheep's clothing
Instrumental
- it threw us
Delphi on its screen:
There you go! Delphi it let's you rock
Delphi it threw us up
The song was about a big rock I love the sound of that! I've been listening to it for a long time and I have to say that I really like it.
Till I heard about Delphi music I kept my ears very close because I thought it was all very technical. Well here it is!!  As of this writing there are 7 songs recorded by Delphi that you can download now which are available for FREE on my website www.the-music-artist.eu.
We have been playing about with this CD and we came to the conclusion that Delphi had gone too far. At this point we needed a song to go together with Delphi's music so, as you are aware, I had been working on it!
Delphi's Themes
What we are trying to create with this album is a collection of themes and a few themes of our


if you ever get bored, enter some lyrics here and let GPT-2 write dozens of different endings. It's so fascinating.

lol wut...


Um, hello?

I'm a cat who sleeps with my name on the front — and can get away with it.

In 2011, when I was 19, I was in the hospital and received a brain injury. I was wearing a full face mask, though, and I also had a collar. My new collar gave a warning: "Don't go near me." I was scared. It wasn't a scary situation for me, but not much of a situation for the people in the emergency room. So, I felt pretty bad about it. I thought, what about this little cat? This was going to ruin my life. How could the cat get away with wearing my name on the front of a hat? So I went to the hospital, put my hat on and took some pictures of the front-facing cat. It was kind of a funny little photo that didn't do much—I was pretty sure about what I was doing.

There didn't happen to be any cats on the front of the hat. Just cats inside of the hospital—I was right! Cat in the hospital.

I have a cat

Does anybody know whether synesthesia is more common among certain cultures? I thought it was a pretty rare thing, and a google search says about 4% of people experience synesthesia. However, I was with a group of friends today, and somebody mentioned something about their synesthesia and it seemed like half the room broke into a heated argument about what color and texture the letter K is. Definitely more than 4% of the room, anyway. It generally doesn't come up in conversation, either, so I don't know anything about how many of my other friends are synesthetes.

Are they artsy people? I think there’s a difference between having synesthesia (e.g. the word “banana” always appears to be written in blue, even when it isn’t), and talking about what sort of feelings something evokes (which is something you can talk about after you spend some time thinking about it).

Like, just because some music-inclined person says a given chord is “warm” doesn’t mean they feel the temperature rise when they hear that chord. It’s just shorthand for the emotional effect of that chord on them.

Or at least that’s my interpretation of my interactions with artistically inclined people. They often use synesthetic language, even if they aren’t synesthetic themselves in a more strict sense. Of course, I wasn’t sitting at that table with you, so I don’t know if my interpretation applies there.

Moreover, "warm" has an agreed-upon meaning of a sound with a lot of low end or low mids but not a lot of high end (i.e. the opposite of bright). A synesthete doesn't necessarily experience things in that way.

I am researching how to apply for a US visa right now... The example visa application that the US government provides is both cute and somewhat embarrassing:

Puzzle foul. Solving the puzzle was a lot harder until I realized that they consider 1 to be a prime number. I felt vindicated in my inability to figure out what the solution was, but that was replaced by nerdrage.

Here in New England,

April showers bring May flowers showers, which bring more rain in June and thunderstorms in July.

I wish we could give some of this rain to places which don't get enough. We don't need it.

Right now it's raining here, also.

But I love rain (at least when I'm inside) so as far as I'm concerned, it can keep going for as long as it wants.

I like rain too; the noise is somewhat calming. But I feel like there is such a thing as too much. Maybe my opinion would change if rain didn't necessarily mean grey skies; I feel like I haven't seen the sun in weeks except for yesterday.

I just cleaned up my inbox, which had thousands of messages and which hasn't been clean for... as long as I remember.

It was surprisingly doable. The algorithm I followed was something like "look over mails, pick topic or sender whose mails fall into a category, search for all mails of that type, delete or archive them all."

I now have a clean inbox. What an unexpected turn of events.

Same, and I utterly don't care. It bothers anyone looking over my shoulder so much more than it bothers me.

here is a random fact: the programming language java can't count up by 1/20. I have a program where I increase a variable iteratively, and instead of going 3 -> 3.05 -> 3.1 -> 3.15 it gives me numbers like 3.149999999999997

At least it rounds correctly to the nearest 0.00000000000001. I suppose that's closer than 3.141592653589793... which only rounds correctly to the nearest 0.05.

Java probably can do that, you're just using the wrong datatype if you need such precision.

That's not just java, that's practically every language, unless you explicitly use some special type.
